Following O2 Germany's announcement from last week, HTC today announced its own version of the HTC Polaris which will be called HTC Touch Cruise. After the HTC Touch and the HTC Touch Dual, the HTC Touch Cruise is the third member of the HTC Touch product family and the first to feature built-in GPS for personal navigation.
Featuring Windows Mobile 6 Professional and a Qualcomm MSM7200 chipset at 400 MHz with GPS support, the HTC Touch Cruise supports quadband GSM/GPRS/EDGE as well as triband UMTS/HSDPA up to 3.6 Mbps, Bluetooth 2.0+EDR, WiFi b/g and a FM radio:

On the back, the smartphone features a 3 megapixel camera and on the front, an additional VGA camera for UMTS video telephony. The 2.8" touchscreen supports QVGA and features HTC's TouchFLO technology. The device includes 256 MB ROM and 128 MB RAM which can be extended with microSD memory cards.

Users on the move will easily be able to interact with the HTC Touch Cruise's navigation functionality and can take advantage of HTC's TouchFLO technology, which enhances finger touch scrolling and browsing of Web pages, documents, messages and contact lists, controlled by simply sweeping a finger across the screen. TouchFLO also offers the ability to view photos and photo slideshows using on-screen controls and to zoom and rotate images with only one hand.

Stylish and sleek in design, the Touch Cruise is further illustration of HTC's commitment to innovation and to building a suite of touchscreen devices that cater to a variety of customer needs and styles. The HTC Home screen provides one-touch access to E-Mails, text messages, calendar appointments and contacts, as well as current weather conditions and forecasts for hundreds of cities around the world. Users can then simply sweep their finger up the display to launch an animated, three-dimensional interface comprising three screens: Contacts, Media and Applications. The interface can be spun by swiping a finger right or left across the display, providing efficient access to the features consumers use most.

The Touch Cruise utilizes mapping and navigation solutions from TomTom. This navigation software comes complete with a taster city map or the option of full maps of Western Europe.

The device will be available from HTC starting this month, a price wasn't given today.

Cheers ~ Arne
